         Histoire anathomique d'un enfant qui a demeuré vingt-cinq ans dans le ventre de sa mère avec des réflexions qui en expliquent tous les phénomènes

      Laurent d'Houry, Paris, 1679, in 16, de 43pp. 1 f. bl., ill. d'une gravure du foetus se dépl. (remontée et restaurée en marge sup.), demi-veau brun fin XIXe, qq. rares rousseurs. (ex-libris Dr. Charpentier) Edition originale qui reprend une publication antérieure du Dr. François Bayle (1622-1709) professeur à l'université de Toulouse, rapportant de façon précise l'observation clinique et l'autopsie d'une femme présentant un lithopédion depuis 25 ans. Historiquement la patiente âgée de 37 ans, sur le point d'accoucher, refusa l'aide d'une sage-femme qui avait la réputation d'une sorcière. Finalement elle n'accoucha pas, et eut de violentes douleurs deux mois après le terme puis continua à ressentir une gêne, parfois des douleurs, jusqu'à son décès à l'âge de 62 ans. Certains attribuèrent cette histoire clinique extraordinaire à une malédiction démoniaque, et l'autopsie de cette patiente suscita un grand émoi. Elle révéla, hors de la matrice, la présence "d'un corps dur comme de la pierre", semi-mobile, solidaire de l'épiploon et qui "fermoit un grand ulcère qui occupoit le fond de la matrice". Ce corps se révéla être un foetus mâle calcifié. Blegny évoque une rupture utérine au cours du travail. De longues discussions à ce sujet eurent lieu au cours des siècles suivants. Ce lithopédion fut finalement associé à une grossesse abdominale liée à une brèche utérine. ¶ Stofft H : Un lithopédion en 1678, Hist. des Sc. Médicales, 1986, 20, p. 267-285 : "Francois Bayle's observation of a lithopaedion, published in 1678, has given rise to discussions in the 17th, 18th, 19th and 20th centuries, allowing us to follow the evolution of medical opinion on the physiology of human reproduction, the pathological anatomy, the aetiology, the pathogenesis and the surgery of abdominal pregnancies." - Dezeimeris I. p.416 "Le foetus, sorti de l'utérus par une rupture de cet organe près de l'insertion d'une des trompes, était contenu dans l'abdomen, et comme pétrifié." - Caillet n° 856 (Bayle).

         Mercurio georgrafico

      In folio (mm 477x325). Frontespizio calcografico raffigurante Mercurio, Sansone, Europa, Asia, Africa ed America, pp. [4: Catalogo delle Tavole], 97 carte geografiche incise in rame su doppia pagina con i confini colorati a mano all'epoca. Piena bazzana coeva, dorso a sette nervi con ricchi fregi e titolo in oro (minimi restauri agl'angoli, qualche macchia e spellatura, cerniere lievemente aperte, ma ottimamente conservata). Al verso del titolo firma di appartenenza, in parte cassata: "Ad usum Presbiteri Joannis Beri". La stessa mano ha corretto la numerazione delle tavole nell'indice -l'estensore essendosi accorto che una delle carte relative ai Paesi Bassi è in realtà rilegata fuori posto-; ha numerato le mappe dalla 1 alla 50 conformemente alla numerazione da lui corretta nell'indice; infine ha integrato l'indice a stampa aggiungendo numero, titolo e data per le 12 mappe aggiuntive che non compaiono nell'indice a stampa, che si ferma alla carta 85. Titolo più corto del resto del volume nel margine esterno, fioriture sparse, lieve alone marginale alle ultime carte, ma ottima copia genuina. Importante raccolta di carte geografiche, curata dallo stampatore Giovanni Giacomo de Rossi in collaborazione con il cartografo del Duca di Modena Giacomo Cantelli. La collaborazione tra i due, cominciata nel 1679, durò fino alla morte del Cantelli, avvenuta nel 1695. Le singole carte geografiche sono datate dal 1669 al 1690. A parte alcune mappe firmate dai cartografi francesi Michael Antoine Baudrand, Guillaume Sanson, Nicholas Sanson e Augustin Lubin, la gran parte delle carte è opera del Cantelli. Tra gli incisori figurano i nomi di Jean Lhuillier, Francesco Donia, Vincenzo Mariotti ed altri. Il Mercurio geografico ebbe grande successo e continuò ad essere pubblicato, anche dopo la morte del Cantelli, fino a Settecento inoltrato con l'aggiunta di una seconda parte e di numerose nuove carte. Ogni esemplare dell'opera differisce dall'altro in quanto a numero di tavole. Essendo queste state prodotte nel corso di diversi anni ed essendo anche vendute singolarmente, il possessore del volume aveva la possibilità di aggiungere a suo piacimento le ultime uscite, come testimonia perfettamente questo volume che presenta 12 tavole aggiuntive rispetto alle 85 indicate nell'indice. Catalogo unico, IT\ICCU\VEAE\005442; A. Bonazzi, Il Mercurio geografico: il gioco e la differenza, in: "Giacomo Cantelli: geografo del Serenissimo", Bologna, 1995, pp. 37-44 e 150-152; A.

         Del suono de' tremori armonici e dell'udito. Trattati.Roma, a spese di Nicolò Angelo Tinassi, 1679.

      Roma, a spese di Nicolò Angelo Tinassi 1679 - Cm. 20, pp. (16) 330 (2). Con numerose ill. xilografiche n.t.; bei finalini e graziosi capilettera. Legatura coeva in pergamena rigida; tagli spruzzati. Abile restauro al dorso. Esemplare fresco e ben conservato. Daniello Bartoli (1608-1685), storiografo dell'ordine dei Gesuiti nativo di Ferrara, si dedicò con autorevolezza anche agli studi scientifici e matematici. In questo importante trattato dedicato ai meccanismi di trasmissione del suono in natura e in musica, l'A. descrive i fenomeni fisici e gli aspetti psicologici legati alla percezione delle diverse tipologie di suono, donando per la prima volta alla musica il ruolo di scienza fisica autonoma e non subalterna alla matematica e alla geometria. L'opera è suddivisa in quattro distinti trattati: "Del somigliante diffondersi che fanno in certi lor movimenti l'aria e l'acqua"; "De' movimenti del suono"; "Del tremore armonico"; "Delle misture de' suoni". Rarissima prima edizione. Cfr. Iccu; Wellcome, II, p. 109; Gamba, 1775; Olschki, Choix, 6068. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

         Prodromo gentilizio ovvero trattato delle armi ed insegne delle famiglie, preliminare alla Europa gentilizia.In Roma, a spese del Tinassi, 1679.

      In Roma, a spese del Tinassi 1679 - Cm. 15,5, pp. (24) 560 (4) [prima carta (anteposta all'occhitetto) e ultima (postposta alla carta di errata) bianche e presenti]. Stupenda legatura coeva alle armi della famiglia Febei, in pieno marocchino rosso con ricchissime decorazioni in oro a dorso e piatti. Tagli dorati. Si segnala lo splendido cofanetto in marocchino rosso (interni in velluto e finestra in plastica simil-vetro trasparente) realizzato dalla prestigiosa legatoria milanese De Stefanis. Trascurabili e sporadiche arrosatture, peraltro magnifico esemplare ottimamente conservato. Antonio Stefano Cartari (1651-), giurista e poligrafo nativo di Orvieto, raggiunse la massima fama grazie agli studi di araldica. Così la voce C. (a cura di Amando Petrucci in D.B.I., volume 20) a proposito di quest'opera: "Egli individuò nell'araldica e nella sigillografia i campi di interesse che gli riuscivano più congeniali, e prese a raccogliere sia sigilli originali, sia impronte, sia infine descrizioni o disegni di stemmi di famiglie nobili. Nacque così in lui il progetto, vastissimo ed ambizioso, di un repertorio generale degli stemmi di tutte le famiglie nobili europee, disegnati e descritti accuratamente; e in pochi anni il C., con accanita opera di spoglio da fonti e da testi di ogni tipo, finì per raccogliere la riproduzione di oltre ventimila stemmi. Nel 1679 egli pubblicò il volume primo e preliminare della grande opera: Prodromo gentilizio overo trattato delle armi ed insegna delle famiglie, Roma 1679, dedicato a F. M. Febei, che consiste in un vero trattato teorico-pratico di araldica, preciso e conciso nella parte tecnica, basata, per confessione dell'autore, su fonti francesi, inattendibile e abborracciato nelle parti storiche; importante appare il glossario dei termini tecnici, nonché l'indicazione di metodo volta a privilegiare le fonti antiquarie, «monete, sigilli e medaglie» in confronto di quelle scritte". Copia unica, in quanto esemplare di dedica: le armi sono di Francesco Maria Febei (1616-1680), arcivescovo di Tarso e scrittore originario di un'antica famiglia ascritta al patriziato di Orvieto. Lo stesso Febei è il destinatario della dedicatoria di Cartari. Prima edizione. Così Piantanida (260): "Rara ediz. probab. orig. di questo trattato diviso in cinque libri (Spreti, Saggio di Bibliogr. araldica, p. 36)". Cfr. anche Iccu. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

"In the seventeenth century the importance of the Parliament Rolls was so great that transcripts were made for private use, and published by private enterprise" (Holdsworth). The most important of these editions was produced by Prynne using a manuscript originally credited to Cotton. It is now believed to have been compiled by William and Robert Bowyer. It records the substance of Acts of Parliament and other particulars, that are not extant in print, among the statutes or the Parliament Rolls, and supplies the purpose of a useful index to the Rolls of Parliament. One of the most notable and colorful figures of the period, Prynne was a contentious, erudite Puritan attorney, legal antiquarian and prolific author. In 1660, he became the Keeper of Records in the Tower of London, a post he held until the end of his life. Holdsworth, A History of English Law II:423. English Short-Title Catalogue R473630.

         DE PAR LE ROY. EXTRAIT DES REGISTRES DU CONSEIL D'ESTAT

      [Paris, 1679. Broadside, 48 x 35.5 cm. Folded, large dampstain affecting top and bottom, else very good. This broadside is signed in print: "Saint Germain en Lay, 24 Oct. 1679...Colbert." One of the chronic problems faced by France was a shortage of shipping, which put the country at a disadvantage in dealing with the maritime powers of her neighbors, England and the Netherlands. To correct this, Colbert instructs (translated from the French): "In order to encourage his subjects in navigation and maritime commerce, the king decrees that anyone who builds a boat in the ports and harbors of the kingdom of more than 100 tons capacity will receive 100 sols per ton." There are instructions for the broadside to be posted at docks and mercantile exchanges so that no one can claim ignorance. Not in the NUC.

He is, perhaps, best remembered for his monumental work "A Display of Heraldry" which was first published in London in 1610. Born in 1565 (some date 1550) in the county of Herefordshire. This part of England is very close to the border with Wales and Guillim's ancestors were probably of Welsh extraction. He was educated at Brasenose College in Oxford University. In 1575 a John Guillim of Minsterworth married Frances Dennis, and raised a family of one boy, John, and three girls, Margaret, Frances, and Priscilla - unreliable source? The first record of his involvement with heraldry is the Earl Marshal's warrant, dated 23 February 1604, permitting him to bear the tabard of the Portsmouth Pursuivant Extraordinary. From Michaelmas 1613, he was receiving a salary from the College of Arms, though his official appointment as Rouge Croix Pursuivant of Arms in Ordinary was not made until 1618. The Display of Heraldry was written around 1610 and reprinted as early as 1611. There were seven further editions of the book following Guillim's death, with the last one being printed in 1724. Some historians have suggested that the original author of the Display of Heraldry was a clergyman named John Barkham who was unwilling to have the work published in his own name. Guillim's death is recorded as having occurred on 7 May 1621, probably at Minsterworth, although there is no record of his place of burial.Sir Ilay Campbell of Succoth (1734 - 1823) was a Scottish judge, was appointed Solicitor General for Scotland in 1783 and Lord Advocate in 1784. He became Member of Parliament for Glasgow Burghs in the same year. He was Lord President of the Court of Session and Lord Justice General from 1789 to 1808. In 1808, he was created a baronet. He also was Lord Rector of the University of Glasgow in 1799, and died in 1823 aged eighty-nine years.Source: Wikipedia

      In: Grew / Boyle / Leeewenhoeck : Recueil d'expériences et d' observations sur le combat qui procede du mélange des corps. Paris 1679 contemporary calf spine gold tooled fine copy. Observations sur le sang &c sur le lait d' avril 1674. Continuation des mesmes observations du mois de Juin 1674. Continuation des mesmes observations du mois de Juillet 1674. Continuation des mesmes observations du mois d' Aoust 1675. Continuation des mesmes observations du mois de Fevrier 1678.First French, the international language of science of the time, also first Book Edition of the first really accurate description of the red blood corpuscles, which Swammerdam had noted in 1658 !"Especially skilful and indefatigable in the grinding of lenses was Antonj van Leeuwenhoek (1632-1723), chamberlain (janitor) of the Council Chamber of the Worshipful Sheriffs of Delft, Holland, and otherwise employed in a linen drapery shop. The Dutchman Jan Swammerdam (1637-1680) and the Italian Marcello Malpighi (1628-1694) are often credited with describing the red blood corpuscles before Leeuwenhoek, but Swammerdam only referred to the presence of "ruddy globules" in the blood and doubted that blood in its vessels contains such globules, while Malpighi's interest seems to have been only casual. It is Leeuwenhoek, therefore, who deserves the credit for having provided the first real description of the red blood cells. He was untutored and had had little formal education, but he was a person of infinite curiosity and patience. He examined his own blood, described the red corpuscles, and even measured their diameters, doing this with remarkable accuracy. How he accomplished this is unclear, for Leeuwenhoek kept the details of his method secret. His microscopes consisted of a minute biconvex lens mounted between two thin oblong plates of brass or other metal. To this, mechanical accessories for focusing the object to be viewed were fixed. In his first report, he described how he drew blood into a glass "pipe" (pipette) "not thicker than a man's hair" and how he attached this to the pin of his microscope with the aid of his "spittle." One marvels how he managed so successfully to display before his magnifying lens the objects he chose to study. How he illuminated them he never divulged."The Blood is composed of exceeding small particles, named globules, which, in most animals are of a red color, swimming in a liquor, called by physicians, the serum. . . . These particles or globules are so minute that 100 of them, placed side by side, would not equal the diameter of a common grain of sand consequently, a grain of sand is above a million times the size of one such globule." Perhaps he employed some form of dark-field illumination. He did not seem to find useful the globules of molten glass which Father de la Torré presented to the Royal Society, and neither did Hewson.That the observations of this self-made scientist became known is a tribute to the remarkable open-mindedness of the Fellows of the Royal Society of London, to whose secretary Leeuwenhoek's friend, the physician Reinier de Graaf, submitted Leeuwenhoek's letter describing his observations. This was the first of no less than 375 communications from Leeuwenhoek which were published in the society's Transactions in the succeeding 50 years.Thus it was that the tiny constituents of the blood, the so-called red corpuscles (the erythrocytes), which carry oxygen about the body, were first seen and it was with similar rudimentary equipment that the cells concerned with the defenses of the body, . , the "white" or colorless corpuscles (the leukocytes) may have been observed, perhaps first by Malpighi and by Leeuwenhoek, but certainly by William Hewson.

Le cinquième article, qui ne figure pas dans la liste des publications de l'auteur établie par Clifford Dobell, est peut-être publié ici pour la première fois. Leewenhoek y décrit en particulier la déformabilité et l'agglutination des hématies. Il faut aussi noter que ces cinq articles font partie des 27 premières lettres de l'auteur, qui n'ont pas été publiées dans ses oeuvres complètes.In : GREW (Néhémiah) - BOYLE (Robert) - LEEWENHOECK (Antoni van)]. : ?Recueil d'expériences et d'observations sur le combat qui procede du mélange des corps.

L'un de ces quatre articles (cf. Garrison & Morton, 860) comporte la première description valable des globules rouges.

The images were not present in the first English edition of 1672. The two examples of microscopes are found in the engraved frontispiece where there is a small, but very early tripod compound microscope on the table next to Flora. In the vignette at the on the first page, 193, of the VIth chapter is a man using a compound microscope. The compound microscope in both images is most likely an Italian made at that period. It is important to note that Grew published his first Anatomy of plants book 10 years after the seminal work of Robert Hooke and the French edition is the first to illustrate a compound tripod microscope.

         A discourse of the state of health in the Island of Jamaica

      1679 - with a provision therefore Calculated from the Air the Place and the Watrer: the Customs and Manners of the Living.First edition. Small 8vo. Nineteenth century morocco, rebacked the original spine, gilt, laid-down, eighteenth century ownership signature in pencil on title page of J. Taverner, M.D., with occasional early pen and pencil mark in the margins, a.e.g. [xvi], 149, [3]ads.pp. London, R. Boulter, Trapham's father was a licensed surgeon in Oxford, who acted during the Civil war as ?body-surgeon? to Oliver Cromwell. He is chiefly remembered for sewing back the head to the body of the executed King. Thomas Trapham junior is known to have studied firstly at Magdalene Oxford then at Leyden, finally obtaining his MD at Caen. In 1664 he was practising in London and was accorded an honorary fellowship of the College of surgeons. It seems that he made his way to Jamaica and practised there from 1673 until his death in about 1702. ?Like all doctors of his time, his understanding of aetiology is dismayingly erroneous. Most diseases he believes are caused by factors such as sudden chilling, exposure to night airs, and intemperance, and are influenced by changes in the lunar cycle. His treatment included the use of emetics, cathartics, venesection, mercurials, and various herbal remedies, which when not positively injurious, would have been ineffectual.? (Ashcroft) It seems probably that the book was written both to ensure Trapham's pre-eminence in his chosen practice and to encourage potential settlers deterred by the prospect of tropical malady. Trapham paints a rosy picture of Jamaica while counselling his readers to adopt the mores of the tropics rather than importing habits of colder climes. In his work the black population hardly figure except where their customs have inadvertently contibuted to their health to good or ill. The Norman and Macclesfield copies are the only ones at auction in the last 30 years. See British Medical Journal 25th August 1975: ?Tercentenary of the first English book on tropical medicine? (M.T.

      London: Obadiah Blagrave,, 1679. Quarto (203 x 152 mm). Recent full calf, spine ruled and decorated gilt in compartments, red morocco label, double blind-rule to boards with floral corner pieces, sprinkled edges. Title lightly dust soiled with the odd spot, natural paper flaw to margin of final preliminary leaf; a very good copy with generous margins, lower edge entirely uncut. Third edition of Petty's first economic treatise which "followed immediately after the Restoration, when changes in the methods of raising revenue were being discussed. The wide range of his survey is shewn by the headings printed on the title-page" (Keynes). This edition, a reprint of the second of 1667 with minor-corrections in the title-page, was published against Petty's wishes. "Written in the midst of urgent practical tasks, the Treatise was plainly occasioned by another question of great immediate importance - the reorganisation of the Revenue by the Restoration Parliament. However, in contrast to the many economic treatises written in defence of concrete interests, while professing to be unbiased theoretical pronouncements, Petty's work is even more remarkable for its theoretical digressions than for its acute and important analysis of its immediate subject. So far from making any claim to scientific detachment, it contains a devastating attack on his bêtes noires, the parasites on the body politic, primarily the clergy and the lawyers, but its greatest achievement is his searching treatment of the main problems of scientific economics. The book is brimful of brilliant ideas, although it inevitably suffers from the defects of its qualities - lack of system, prejudice and sometimes inconsistency. These blemishes cannot shake its position as one of the handful of first-rate economic treatises and a classic on its subject" (Strauss, Sir William Petty, Portrait of a genius, p. 176). "The Treatise on Taxes seems to be a straightforward discussion of the sources of public revenue, the forms of public expenditure, and of the best means of raising the one and disbursing the other... Petty's analysis... when it is summarized... includes a theory of value and wages, a theory of profit or surplus (which is in effect a theory of rent), a discussion of the value of land, and a theory of interest and foreign exchange" (Roll, pp. 102-3).
